Astigmatism can be treated in two ways:
At Advanced Vision Care, there are multiple ways cataract surgery can help treat astigmatism. Depending on your individual needs and requirements, your surgeon will customize a treatment plan to address astigmatism, in addition to cataracts.
In cases where astigmatism is severe, or you wish for a more permanent correction of vision, we recommend LASIK surgery. Next, using one laser your surgeon will carefully create a flap. Another laser will then reshape the cornea and the flap will be placed back down.
Your eye will be anesthetized using a numbing agent. Next, your surgeon will carefully pull open the flap that covers the cornea, reshape the cornea, and put the flap back in place. The flap has a natural ability to heal and fuse into the eye. So you won’t have to worry about additional surgery.
LASIK surgery is a quick surgery that has a recovery period of just 24-48 hours. You will be instructed not to strain your eye for the next few days. You may even be asked to wear sunglasses during your recovery.
